Seeking 15-minute papers for a panel on dead or dying animals in literature, science, film, art, or new media, or in relation to any other aspect of human culture. Proposals on any relevant topic are welcome, but I am especially interested in innovative subject matter and perspectives that engage with ecocriticism and/or animal studies.

Send the following by e-mail attachment no later than October 1, 2010:

1. An abstract of no more than 300 words.

2. Either a C.V. or a brief biographical statement that gives a sense of your academic background and research interests.

Please send abstracts (and any questions) to Christopher Anderson (Pittsburg State University) at cta@fusemail.net.

The 2011 ASLE conference takes place June 21-26, 2011 in Bloomington, Indiana. Information is available at http://www.indiana.edu/~asle2011/index.shtml.
